Product Description

In this simple, elegant card game, players match colors and and make snakes from heads to tails. Long snakes, short snakes, purple, yellow and rainbow snakes. Finish a snake and add it to your snake pit. The player with the most snakes at the end of the game wins.

As each Hisss snake slithers its way across the playing area it introduces color identification and visual logic: Does it make sense to have a snake with two tails and no head? Are those two colors the same or not? Even elementary counting skills come into play during scoring at the end of the game.

Great for the Younger Set!
February 03, 2003

This game is a great game for young children. The cards are very sturdy. My son started playing this game at the age of 3. He loved building giant snakes. Great for learning colors also. I highly recommend this game for Pre-school children. My 7 year old also enjoyed playing this game with his brother.
